Susan Claassen stars as Edith Head in this behind-the-scenes feast of great movie lore and delicious stories. In her six-decades as a costume designer, Edith Head worked on more than 500 films and dressed most of the great stars - including Mae West, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. Over her long career, Head received 35 Academy Award nominations and won an unprecedented eight Oscars! Join us for a cabaret-style experience in The Sheldon Ballroom and hear "Miss Head" tell her own story, filled with humor, ambition and above all, glamour!
This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Glamour: Costumes and Images from the Collection of Mary Strauss, on view at the Sheldon Art Galleries from October 4 to December 28, 2013.
Seating is at reserved 4-person tables.
